Parramatta Diocese has begun its Year of St Joseph celebrations with the release of a short, animated video reflection inspired by Pope Francis’ apostolic letter, Patris Corde. Source: Catholic Outlook.
The Pope announced the Year of St Joseph with Patris Corde, released on December 8, 2020. The year is in honour of the 150th anniversary of the saint’s proclamation as patron of the Universal Church and will conclude on December 8 this year.
In the letter, Francis said he established a Year of St Joseph so that “every member of the faithful, following his example, may strengthen their life of faith daily in the complete fulfillment of God’s will”.
“Each of us can discover in Joseph – the man who goes unnoticed, a daily, discreet and hidden presence – an intercessor, a support and a guide in times of trouble,” he wrote.
Parramatta Diocese’s video encourages people to imitate the example of St Joseph in their lives and communities. It emphasises the value of good, faithful and noble service.
The video launches the 2021 season of videos and other prayer resources on the diocese’s video streaming service, The Well.
